Resistance Warning

 

Fungicide Resistance Warning

 

GROUP C FUNGICIDE

Armour C Seed Dressing is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management Armour C Seed Dressing is a Group C fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to Armour C Seed Dressing and other Group C fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by Armour C Seed Dressing and other Group C fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss.

 

Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, Cheminova accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Armour C Seed Dressing to control resistant fungi.

 

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

 

GROUP 3A INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management Armour C Seed Dressing is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Armour C Seed Dressing and other Group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Armour C Seed Dressing or other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Armour C Seed Dressing on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.

 

Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Cheminova accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Armour C Seed Dressing to control resistant insects. Armour C Seed Dressing may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Cheminova representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

Short coleoptile cultivars should not be sown too deep. In some situations trifluralin herbicides and triazole fungicides interact to suppress emergence, if possible avoid this combination. Any seed not intended to be used for sowing should be destroyed.
